April Town Meeting Approves Article 34, Funding for National Historic District Preservation Planner
Why is the Southborough Historical Commission in favor of a National Register Historic District?
The Southborough Historical Commission (SHC) is excited to announce a proposal to create a National Register Historic District (NRHD) in the Main Street area downtown.
SHC believes it is perfect time to recognize the historic importance of Southborough’s downtown Main Street area, which has a precious collection of historic buildings, including houses, two churches, municipal buildings, commercial buildings, a renowned private school and the Town Common.
NRHD is a purely honorary designation, and DOES NOT impose ANY restrictions on property owners, it is therefore an ideal way to foster a sense of community pride in Southborough.
In a nutshell, a National Register Historic District in Southborough will provide All Upside — No Downside.
